We report a high lasing wavelength uniformity of optically pumped InP-based microdisk lasers processed with electron-beam lithography, heterogeneously integrated with adhesive bonding on silicon-on-insulator (SOI) waveguide circuits and evanescently coupled to an underlying waveguide. We study the continuous wave laser emission coupling out of the SOI via a grating coupler etched at one side of the waveguide, and demonstrate a standard deviation in lasing wavelength of nominally identical devices on the same chip lower than 500 pm. The deviation in the diameter of the microdisks as low as a few nanometers makes all-optical signal processing applications requiring cascadability possible.
